Region

Under the sun of Haute-Provence

Vast stretches of lavender fields scattered with traditional villages built against the hills and emerald blue lakes form the landscapes of the Alpes de Haute-Provence, like described by Pagnol and Giono. To fully enjoy this colourful region of southern scents, you can visit the Provençal markets in the typical villages of the region.

 

Outdoor and white water sports

The Alpes de Haute-Provence are a delight to hikers. It must be said that the more than 100 kilometres of signposted hiking paths around Moustiers-Sainte-Marie or the Gorges du Verdon, various hiking possibilities are offered to you. Those who love water sports will not be left behind. The Sainte-Croix lake allows boating and sailing, while Castellanne is the starting point for white water sports (canoe, rafting, canyoning). The most daring will try extreme sports like parasailing or climbing in the Gorges.
